    [–] Charity Stream For Suicide Awareness!!! Please help!!! TheDirewolf35 3 points ago in PUBATTLEGROUNDS

    Just a heads up, you may have people more willing to donate if you had them donate directly to the charity via something like Tiltify.

    American Foundation of Suicide Prevention is available on Tiltify: https://tiltify.com/afsp

    If you use Streamlabs it integrates with Tiltify for alerts, there are probably other options as well but I'm not sure as I've never run a charity stream myself.

    [–] How should I set my base canvas size? TheDirewolf35 1 points ago in obs

    Why is having a scaled down canvas size better than using the "output resolution" setting on the video settings tab?

    Thank you so much. That is how I was leaning but I wasn't sure.

    [–] I stream with OBS (CPU), but I've always had super high usage. Is this normal? TheDirewolf35 1 points ago in Twitch

    I copied out the relevant bit about CPU preset. Basically without knowing what CPU you have and what preset you are running it is impossible to say whether or not the CPU usage you are seeing is high. OBS can crush any CPU depending on the settings.

    x264 CPU Preset This is an internal quality / time tradeoff scale in x264. A faster preset means less time will be spent encoding, but the image quality will be worse. A slower preset will increase CPU usage, but the image quality will be slightly better. You will almost always get better quality improvements from either a higher FPS, higher resolution or an increased bitrate. Changing this setting to improve quality is not recommended as the improvements are very minor and come at a great CPU cost. Going faster than veryfast will also disable many x264 optimizations and your stream quality will suffer. If you have constant CPU usage (eg a capture card) and know for certain you have spare CPU resources, you can set a slower preset for a very minor quality improvement. If you notice you have low FPS or lagged frames, you may have set your preset too slow.

    Recommended: veryfast

    What preset are you using? That would make a much bigger impact on CPU usage than bitrate.

    [–] I think your predictions are just a little bit off,Intel! TheDirewolf35 1 points ago in pcmasterrace

    My bad, that was a typo. Many believe that the extra 2 real cores on the 8c8t will outperform the 6 ht “cores” on the 6c12t

    [–] I think your predictions are just a little bit off,Intel! TheDirewolf35 1 points ago in pcmasterrace

    That is why there is a lot of uproar currently lol. It is possible that the 8c8t i7 will outperform the previous 6c6t i7 so if the price is the same then it would still be an upgrade, just seems like such a shitty thing to do. I hope AMD is able to dickslap Intel a bit to get their heads out of their asses.

    [–] I think your predictions are just a little bit off,Intel! TheDirewolf35 1 points ago in pcmasterrace

    I would expect the i7 to remain near the old i7 price, maybe slightly higher, and the i9 to be more expensive.

    [–] Ever discover a great multiplayer game just as it was dying? TheDirewolf35 1 points ago in Games

    This game was the first thing I thought of when I saw the title too. Man stealing a flag at ludicrous speed was the most intense and exciting thing. Then the game was just... gone.

    [–] Play Anywhere.... Anyone else wish more titles were part of it? TheDirewolf35 1 points ago in xboxone

    Beyond that I'm not sure if it takes much extra work to make a game UWP for the Xbox Store on Win 10. If you're already developing/porting a copy for Steam, it might not make sense to also develop a UWP version for the Xbox store.

    [–] Play Anywhere.... Anyone else wish more titles were part of it? TheDirewolf35 2 points ago in xboxone

    It isn't only about one being unavailable, but for different experiences. When I want to play with my friends I like to be on my PC sitting at my desk. When I am just looking for something to do while sitting on the couch with my wife and/or kid, it's nice to be able to just turn on the Xbox and have my games there too. I probably wouldn't have bought Sea of Thieves if it wasn't for Play Anywhere because I don't think I would have gotten enough out of it if I couldn't play it either way.
